San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced that the city will require anyone wishing to dine in a restaurant, use a fitness center, or visit an indoor venue such as a museum or theater to be fully vaccinated as of August 20.

Employees of such venues must be fully vaccinated as of October 13.

“Vaccines are our way out of the pandemic, and our way back to a life where we can be together safely,” Breed said in a statement.

The requirement also covers some in the health-care professions including dentists, pharmacists, and home health-care aides.

Many bars and restaurants already require fully vaccinated status for their patrons.

Approximately 80% of city residents have already been vaccinated.

New York recently instituted a similar policy, but it allows those who have had the first vaccination shot of a two shot vaccine into restaurants and other indoor venues.
